Spiritual Leadership Opportunities

Spiritual Leadership Opportunities

The Officer Nominating Committee (ONC) is seeking church members to serve as Deacons and Elders for a three year term starting in January 2024. God calls men and women to serve in roles that build up His church and minister to the congregation. Nominees can be self-referred or nominated by others.

Deacons are spiritual leaders with the gift of compassion. They serve the church and surrounding community in ministries that offer physical and spiritual care for those who are in need. Some examples of these ministries would be visitation, flower delivery, communion preparation, grief support and local mission outreach.

Elders serve on Session and represent the governing body of the church to help discern God’s direction for the congregation and provide support for staff as they implement various ministries. Elders also lead key committees such as Missions, Administration/ Finance and Human Relations and serve as liaisons with other church ministries.

Deacons and Elders are nominated and elected by members of the congregation. Nominations will formally open on Sunday, April 16. If you would like to make a nomination, please complete the form using the link on our website and send it to Terry Elrod at
